Fun career sites and posts I’ve found lately #2

I’ve really been enjoying finding more and more people using Twitter.  For instance, it turns out that 3 alums of the school where I work are big Tweeple: @dfletcher, CIO of the State of Utah, @billschrier, CTO of the City of Seattle, and @levyj413, the webmaster of the EPA.  But my favorite thing is the referrals to great articles from Twitter.

My favorite new social networking site for government, www.govloop.com, is explained in more detail here: http://www.wikinomics.com/blog/index.php/2008/09/03/guest-blogger-steve-ressler-on-government-20-the-rise-of-informal-networks/
